So this is something common that comes up. I have a view model being passed to my Razor View called CustomerSchedule. In that view model there is CustomerID that when coming into that view if I placed a EditorFor I see the Customer ID number. Further down the view I have a kendo grid that is bound to another view model called CustomerFees. In that view model I also have a field called the same property name CustomerID. In that grid I pass to an action Model.CustomerID which usually would take the higher level View Model property in no issues. Problem is no matter what I do that Model property is coming up 0 every time. I even tried using JQuery to get at the property and it's still 0 but the EditorFor is showing the ID number. Any idea how to best deal with this? I was trying a partial view as well not sure if that would work etc.
